The Turkish Urfa Biber chile is known for its deep, complex, raisin-like flavor with hints of coffee. For this reason, it is often served with cheeses, as the fat accentuates the chile’s flavor. In this application, creamy walnut-infused Feta dip is the vehicle for showcasing our flavorful Urfa Biber Chile Flakes.
